ALICE Run Manager (4 - 17 Sep 2023):  Bharati Naik


Bharati Naik is a postdoctoral fellw from Johannesburg. She is a specialist in D-meson and azimuthal correlations in pp collisions at 13 TeV, a subject she extensively studied in her Ph.D. thesis. Later she was in charge of the high-level QA for analysis of D-meson hadron correlations and HF jets in data and MC samples. Since Run 2 she has been committed to operations, ensuring several central shifts for different roles: DCS, ECS, and SL, and being a DCS expert shifter for Heavy Ions. On the detector side, she is also doing MID On-calls.
During her mandate, Bharati will coordinate critical data taking, starting with the VdM scan on Tuesday, 5 September. During the High beta run, she will coordinate the last software upgrade in preparation for Heavy Ion and full revalidation of all acquisition components. Starting the 11 September, Bharati will be in charge of the pp reference run at the center of mass energy of 5.36 TeV which marks the start of our Heavy Ion program.
